While the “super-committee” meets behind closed doors, House and Senate conservatives meet with grassroots to discuss $9 trillion in spending cuts.

House and Senate members will join over 200 tea party leaders from across the country for the Tea Party Debt Commission joint hearing this Thursday, November 17th from 2-4pm ET in Senate Russell hearing room 325. Commissioners will testify for approximately 30 minutes, followed by Q&A from legislators.

The hearing will serve as the tea party’s response to the super-committee’s likely disappointing findings, and counter the false narrative that tea partiers can’t identify specific cuts to the budget. Grassroots leaders around the country know that Washington can do better, and the findings of the Tea Party Debt Commission document exactly what cuts can -and should- be made to preserve America’s economic future.
